Protein Peanut Butter Cups

What if you can eat peanut butter cups that increase your biceps? Or 1RM deadlift? Ok, maybe a bit too much, but what if you can have peanut butter cups that contain more protein, less carbs and less calories?
Just make your own!


You need: (makes 10 peanut butter cups)

50 grams of Manbake Cookie Butter 
100 grams of dark chocolate (we used 80%, anything lower is for babies)

Some type of double boiler (what?) 
We used something like this. You fill a pot with water, bring it to a boil, put the double boiler on top, add in the chocolate and let it slowly melt. 
These types of boilers make it easier to pour the chocolate out.

Silicone muffin molds
For the macro specifics: a digital scale that has a 0.1g capacity

This recipe requires a bit of dedication and patience, so make sure you take a bit of time for it.
First, melt the chocolate completely. No lumps!
To compare: regular Reese's Cups

Put a silicone mold on the scale and pour 5 grams worth of chocolate in. Repeat with all of the molds and place them in the fridge for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, keep the rest of the chocolate warm.

Next, with the help of the scale again, scoop 5 grams of Manbake Cookie Butter in each mold. Tap with the bottom of the mold a bit on a flat surface so the cookie butter flattens a bit. Again, place in the fridge for about 10 minutes.

Last step, using the scale again, pour another 5 grams of chocolate on top of the cookie butter, make sure it's covered completely. 
Place them in the fridge and let them cool for at least 1 hour, but preferably longer (if you can)




Please note: We used Manbake Cookie Butter in this recipe, and yes, we are aware that it's pricier than most peanut butters and probably not available everywhere. If that applies to you, use your imagination and opt for regular peanut butter, perhaps even with a little protein mixed in and share your creation in the comments below or on our FaceBook page.
